Developing Pig Expertise

Friday, 24 May 2019

Be the first to take part in our new training programme.

The Developing Pig Expertise (DPE) programme is being piloted to provide professional development to people who advise pig producers, as well as to upskill new entrants to the industry.

We aim to recruit 15 professionals from across the industry, including consultants and advisors, vets, academics and allied industry representatives, who will take part in five practical workshops between July and December 2019.

The programme has been influenced by the successful AHDB Beef & Lamb Developing Expertise programmes, our educational strategy and the existing knowledge exchange offer across the industry.
